Jasmine Lee has sweet memories of Shepard Marlowe when they were both much younger and in love. She doesn’t know this cold and angry man or why he needs her as his wife. She only knows that if she accepts his proposal, she’ll be able to help her ailing father – but what’s in it for Shepard?
I enjoyed this well written, second chance romance. I liked Jasmine’s loyalty; her duty to family and her determination hold her own against Shepard. The mystery surrounding Shepard’s dark, brooding dominant behaviour was a surprise I hadn’t anticipated. The characters are well-defined and intriguing. There’s plenty of drama, angst, suspense and secrecy, plus some dirty talk along with several seriously steamy encounters which include spanking and bondage on occasion.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
